I was quite intrigued by this novel. I seem to be reading a number of Victorian mysteries with a "Celestial" character - someone of Chinese descent - at the forefront (the most recent being MURDER ON MILLIONAIRE'S ROW by Erin Lindsey).
This novel takes place mostly in the drawing room of the Britannia, a gentlemen's club with rules aplenty. When a member is found murdered, Eric Peterkin's undertaking its solution, and soon finds many more mysteries afoot. I loved Huang's attention to detail, and his exacting character development. I quickly felt like Eric was a man that I knew and admired. I recommend this novel to historical mystery fans everywhere.
I received this novel through NetGalley, from Inkshares, in exchange for an honest review.
